Whitworth Care - a Calico Group service

A home and community that you’ll be proud to call your own.

Whether you are looking for yourself or a member of your family, we all want to be certain that the support is meaningful and personal.

Whitworth Care’s services are tailored for every resident and their family. We’re committed to quality residential care; treating everyone as individuals with their own unique personal care plan.

For those who need it, we can provide long-term residential care and specialist dementia care. We can also provide respite care to help give carers a break.

We pride ourselves on an excellent reputation and a welcoming, friendly environment – helping you feel ‘at home’ rather than ‘in a home’.

People’s needs vary over time and everyone should be treated as an individual. That’s why Whitworth Care ensures that the support we provide is meaningful and personal to every resident and their family.

Whatever level of support you need, we’ll ensure that you always receive the highest quality of care tailored specifically to you.

Residential Care

Care and support for those who require personal care, but don’t need nursing care.

Dementia Care

We provide specialist support and a dementia-friendly environment.

Short-Term Care

Respite stays can be beneficial for everyone involved. You may not feel ready to go home after an operation or illness, or your family or carers may be on holiday and unable to provide the care and support you need for a short period of time.

Every resident can expect personalised care and an individual key worker to look after their needs. We also provide home-cooked meals with a lively calendar of social activities and entertainment for people who want to take part. GPs, health professionals and hair dressers visit regularly too.
